Dust Puppy inside Enterprise D
Captain's Log - Stardate 20050528.8: While on an important scientific mission the computer core on the starship Enterprise D suddenly experienced an emergency shutdown. After conducting a thorough investigation it became clear that the well known life-form called Dust Puppy caused overheating of the central processing unit. The shutdown temperature threshold of 75°C was reached while running the intensive computing algorithms for Einstein@Home project. Using the standard Starfleet issue vacuum cleaner the intruder has been removed and NCC-1701-D is again operating within normal parameters (45°C - 50°C under full load). Let us hope that the next encounter with Dust Puppy is far away in the future.
